Going to keep this short-n-sweet. Just want to share some upcoming holiday cheer and link-up posts in hopes of encouraging you to join the fun. Grab your calendars and have a look…
Holiday Mini Bucket List
Consider this your cordial invitation to join me for my second annual holiday mini bucket list post going live on 12.01.2018. You can check out last year’s post, here and the update post, here, that takes a look at how I fared on my mini list.
Haven’t given a lot of thought to my list yet but know that I want to include a feel good, pay it forward type activity. Like picking a child’s name from the giving tree at the mall. Paying for a soldier’s meal at a restaurant. Donating blankets or food.
Also I want to do something crafty. Still have a fall craft pending on my autumn bucket list. Maybe I can figure out a way to combine the two.
And what’s a bucket list without a date night activity? Might be time for another progressive date. Or maybe a backwards date?
Hope you will put together your list and come back to join me for this post on Saturday, 12.01.2018. Mark those calendars!
Deck the Halls
You might remember the mug exchange I participated in earlier this fall. I was paired with the hostess of the exchange, Stephanie at Wife Mommy Me. Have gotten to know Stephanie a little bit and joined her for a cookie swap blog hop. I shared a recipe for lemon almond cookies that I guarantee you will love.
Over the next couple of weeks, I will join Stephanie again for two more holiday posts. Deck the halls on 12.12.2018, a holiday home tour. And YOU can link-up with us. So start snapping those photos of your ho-ho-holiday decor!!
Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt
Join me in looking for as many of these holiday themed decorations as you can find throughout the month of December. Snap a pic and create a collage of your favorites, then share 12.24.2018 on Instagram using #2018ChristmasLightScavengerHunt and comment with how many of the lights you were able to find.
Christmas Moments Photo Challenge
Last but not least, six of us are hosting a Christmas moments photo challenge.
Using the prompts on the graphic below, take a photo for each day’s theme. Share on Instagram using #2018ChristmasMoments.
Have you penciled these into your agendas and planners? I am going to do that right now. Just received my shiny new 2019 planner, have you picked out one for the coming year? I will be sharing the one I chose in an upcoming post. Stay tuned.
Update on My Mom
The Thanksgiving holidays were very difficult for our family. As I mentioned here, my 91-year-old mom is really struggling. She has never liked the holidays so at best, the weeks between Halloween and the new year are always a challenge for mom. But she is having some physical and mental health concerns that we are working to understand and get to the bottom of. I will be flying to Kentucky in little more than a week to visit mom and try to figure out how best to help her. Thank you for the well wishes and prayers, my friends.
Now, let’s get these holidays started!
Hugs and kisses,
